    With that in mind i made some changes, i removed the client access panel and centered the product descriptions. I was toying with a slightly darker gray background color but decided against it. I also realized i wont need an excessive amount of links, that will only serve to confuse perspective client. SO I added box for customer references instead. A little self indulgent advertisement can'y hurt I also added a different header and placed the menu in in a more visible area. Tell me what you think and I'll keep posting the changes oh and loads of thanks to miss octo as usual!

    It's too complex and dark, i would get rid of the gradients and change the solid color or a better gradient, and trow the layout in a white background, and tune up that type.

    Hmm, get rid of the gradients ? Seams oddly the opposite of what i told you about your natural diaper website I'll take the white background under consideration though. I expected few people might have objections to the overall darkness of the site. But i have seen it done before and I'm hoping i can pull if off as well. Thanks for the comment.

    I personally can't see a need for it to be white; its subjective and depends on a persons opinion.
    Choose a colour you feel works best....

    Good point, it doesn't have to be white, but if he wants black he has to find a way to make it work.

    Here is the latest update, i posted this on Designerstalk.com as well just to get as many different point of views as possible. I have arranged the textual content a little different may not be too obvious unless you compare this update to the last one. I have spread the product descriptions (the colored boxes) a bit more and I'm toying with the idea of some arrows going in between them, going from left to right, creating some directional flow. I added a screen wide footer so tell me what you think of that. I know the elements I'm using are not very original but I'm just trying to create a simple and accessible site.

    Hmm a suggestion for those bottom boxes could be, make them wider and have thumbnails of the images of work, from those categories, with an excerpt/quick description, and tone down the yellow/green/blue slightly....
